Members of the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians of California rejected an attempt to halt disenrollment of up to 400 tribal members, The Riverside Press-Enterprise reports.

The members targeted for removal say their opponents want to increase their share of profits from the tribe's successful casino. The opponents say the members don't have Pechanga heritage and are trying to take over the tribal government.
